    Great idea!
    and great stuff when you need to wrap a sprained wrist or ankle.

    I was wondering if you could put one of those thimble dots on , then wrap with this? It would give you the reinforcement to keep the needle from going through. Just thinking!

    Give a metal thimble a whack with a hammer to make the big end oval. It will fit your finger because your finger is oval not round. I do this to all my metal thimbles. Get a cheap metal thimble and give it a try. I love the Wonder Thimble, it's my favorite of all and I have many different types of thimbles even the custom fitted one. Not worth the money to use to me, but it's pretty to display.
    Got fabric?

    Thank you for sharing as I just have never found a thimble that works for me. In addition, I can get some for free to try from my daughter the Vet!
